We explore the shadows and hidden niches of myth and enchantment, knowing that the mysteries have many layers and liminal points of access. From the charms of witchcraft to the pages of rare grimoires, from the divine names of the Qabalah to the hallowed forms of goddesses like Hekate and Artemis, comes the inspiration of the poet and the oracle, the druid and the mage, the mystic and the scholar. All of these expressions of the petals of the divine unfold and find form in our books, fragments of dreams and visions of the otherworldly frozen in words and transmuted by the fervour and craft of our authors.
All of our authors, translators and researchers are known and respected for their dedication, passion and experience of their fields. They combine the benefits of tradition and scholarship with the insights of the innovator and the explorer, they are creative artists and intuitive technicians crossing the frontiers of convention to blaze new trails in the landscape of esoteric and spiritual knowledge.
Our passion for knowledge is what drives us.
Avalonia is run by Sorita d’Este, it was born in the Spring of 2005 out of the community website she previous facilitated for a nearly a decade with the same name. Initially it was a hobby project which was set up to publish the book The Guises of the Morrigan which she co-authored with David Rankine, and a handful of subsequent projects. She decided to expand it into the venture it is now after finding out that she was expecting her son to enable her the freedom to be both a mum and continue her studies of esoterica, mythology and religion. Today Avalonia publishes the work of several noteworthy authors, and the work of many more have appeared in anthologies produced over the last few years. We are very excited to continue to take on new projects by authors who are passionate about their subject, are willing to research, practice or otherwise push at the esoteric boundaries. If you are interested in working with us, see our Submission Guidelines.
